How are parents of children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities involved in the school and decisions about their child’s education?
Our school has an open door policy to parents, meaning you are welcome to come and discuss your child at any time. Class teachers are available after school once the children have been dismissed. Our senior leadership team will also be available to talk with you during the school day. If you would like to speak with a specific member of staff and they are not available to speak to, please arrange a mutually convenient appointment.
We aim to regularly involve parents in the education of their child through a variety of different ways including:
- Regular meetings with your child’s class teacher and/or SENDCo.
- Each term, a summary report is sent to parents whose child is on the SEND register. This report states the level your child is working at in reading, writing and maths and lists any interventions they are receiving.
- Meeting other professionals who work with your child.
- Our Learning Mentor/Parent Partnership Advisor is available to discuss a variety of issues.
- A newsletter is posted on class dojo. This has information about all the things which are going on in school and upcoming dates for your diary.
- A termly class newsletter is posted on class dojo to inform parents of what will be going on in their child’s class during the term.
- Home reading logs.
- Some children may have home/school books to inform parents of important information.
- Information on the school website.
- Parents’ evenings once a term.
- INSPIRE workshops.
- Parent drop-ins/coffee mornings.
- Signposting to parent groups.
- Parent questionnaires.
- Parents’ views on Annual Review documents.
In addition to all of this, Mrs Buck is usually available at 9am Tuesday - Thursday and will always be happy to arrange a time for a more formal conversation should that be needed.
